    i am 17 my birthday was the 12th and i have GCSE's, A,B,C,C,C,C,D, the A is for ICT and B for Maths and i am doing AVCE ICT at college, i also did work experience at a learn direct place where they teach people how to use computers, i was doing things like filing, photocopying.

    Im just looking for a normal part time job, i did have one but left because i wanted to work at one shop instead of being told to go to a different shop from day to day. I only want to do 2 days a week.

    What you think?

    Thanks

    An office junior is a full time position usualy, and they pay is like £2 an hour (they offer the jobs to 16 year old school leavers).

    Have you thought about data entry that kind of thing?

    You should become a careers adviser. I think that should suit you, other than computers of course.

    Office junior will just really be being the dogs body around an office. Hence the reson school leavers do it, not offence meant ot anyone but for some people if the have not GCSEs etc it means that they can get a full time job, experience and then work their way up. From what you are saying I think you would be better just getting a part time job that you would enjoy at the minute until you finish your AVCE and then look for a job in that field.
